Internationality in forestry studies


At the department, there are three international Master’s Degree Programmes in which students can study:

In addition to the International Master’s Degree Programmes, students on the department of Forest Sciences have good possibilities for international exchange. Annually, many forestry students choose to study one semester or two in a foreign university. Furthermore, there are many foreign students conducting either their non-graduate degree or graduate studies on the department. More information about exchange programmes.

Partly due to international students our department can offer international learning environment, and students have possibility to make contacts with their international colleagues already while studying.
